I'm engaged to my wonderful fiance. He has two children from a previous marriage whom we have custody of (they only see their bio. mom on standard orders...3 hrs wed, every other wkend). They both totally accept me and love me and even call me 'mom'. I am VERY lucky that they have been so accepting of me and my relationship with their dad.
We are getting married soon and have decided to start trying for our first baby. I stopped taking the pill the beginning of Nov. We have been doing EVERYTHING possible to get pregnant and no dice yet. It's very frustrating but it does feel like we've been trying longer than 2 months since marriage and children is what we've wanted most together since we've been together. Am I just being impatient?
On top of having just recently stopped the pill, he was diagnosed with low testosterone a few months ago and is receiving monthly testosterone injections. Things I have read says a side effect of testosterone replacement can be low/no sperm count among other thing.... however his brother (a pharmacist) did some research and did not seem to think it'd affect our chances, that it is most likely the pill isn't out of my system completely yet... his doctor did not seem to think it'd be an issue either but we see him on Monday and will ask more specific questions this time. I love my step children but I am just worried that I won't be able to have my own children
